    Anyone know what a front axle from a 47-55 chevy truck is made of? Steel or iron?

    I can't imagine any factory solid axles being cast. All the Ford stuff was forged steel.

    Whatcha doin'?

    I'm using it on a modified project I'm building (cause its free) and was wondering about welding on it.
